I have a Whirlpool Cbrio top load washer. it won't start it's cycle. Once it senses the load, the lock lid light flashes and it does nothing. can this be fixed?


I would say that the lock has failed. Either the lock itself or maybe the pin or latch that fits into it when you close the door may have cracked / broken. If the machine thinks the door / lid is still open, it wont let you start it.

Lid is not locking properly, washer sensor is overfilling, and the washer wont spin


Check door switch: If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. OR

Machine died


It could be a lid sensor issue, due to the fact that pressing on the door seem to temporarily fix the problem. Then again, honestly im really not familiar with washers that old, so i don't even know if it would have a lid sensor, much like older cars don't have seat belts, so im not exactly sure when they started introducing lid safety switches on washers. In any case, i would try and check for a lid switch/sensor and if so, try finding a replacement for it.

When i pull on the knob of the washer I hear a sound but it doesn't turn on


I had the same problem.... There was a part that I had to replace lid sensor. Aparently, the lid sensor was bent and it was telling the washer that the lid was still up. I has an appliance repair persn to fix it, and the bad news was, it was expensive $150.

How to fix the lid sensor switch?


If you still require assistance, follow these instructions. If you open and close the lid, you should hear a "clicking" sound as the lid switch is activated. If you do not hear the switch, check to make sure the lid strike in still intact. This is a small plastic piece mounted on the lid that pushes down on the switch through a slot on the wash tub opening on the right hand side. If this piece breaks off, it will give the same symptoms of a broken lid switch. Next, check the two mounting screws on the right side of the wash tub opening to make sure they are tight. These are the mounting screws for the lid switch. Sometimes they come loose and the switch does not make proper contact. If you attempt all these preliminaries, and the switch still does not seem to be working properly, replace it. A replacement can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and the part will be located under the "Top and Cabinet" heading. For instructions on how to replace a lid switch, click on the following link:

I hope this helps you. If you require assistance in locating parts, or need further advice, please let me know.
